Art in My Town

Gallery – A must see

In their own words…” Imago Galleries strives for curatorial excellence in bringing groundbreaking exhibitions of the highest caliber to the West Coast. A few photos from the current exhibitions. “
While El Paseo has become ever more elegant over the years with the addition of a continuous flow of luxury retail stores, Imago Galleries drives high culture home in world-class style. The art is exceptional, the architecture would be a dream home. The ground floor has a nice sculpture garden, and the second floor has a large deck for an amazing view of the desert.
Where do you find it?
Just head south on Highway 74 past El Paseo and immediately look to your left for the beaming yellow Chihuly hanging in the second floor window.
At this writing Imago is updating their website. They tell me that it will be up very soon. I’ll let you know when that happens.
